Scavenger hunt: Find the dookie! http://cl.ly/TxYm/mig-dookie.png
First I thought it was nice, but plain. Then I saw the original, interesting spacing, the interesting but unobtrusive details, and how easy it was to read and take in, and I realised it was outstanding.
I was really inspired by my traditional roots in print design. Thanks, Nicola.
The don't squish me stuff is kind of...weird. I resized because I had my browser thin from working before getting distracted by DN and going to the link. I fixed the size, and got a screen full of poop.
I'm pretty sure we'd pass this portfolio by completely because of the resizing ploy. Cute but kinda a cop-out.
It is annoying.
Completely original and refreshing design.
Love the tldr on the about page. Lot's of great details here, it's nice to see so much thought going into this.
Much information design. Such beauts.
Really clean design, especially the mobile viewport. But I'm not a fan of these "don't squish me" overlays going around. No harm, no foul right? I don't get why you'd cheapen such great designs with such an unnecessary thing.
He's the author of the "don't squish me" plugin. I don't think it cheapens it at all to be little lighthearted.
Thanks for the comments, Adam. I think with a layout like this, and with as much copy I wrote—it starts to get a little to serious. I think it’s easy for us to fall in love with what we’re saying, and to take things a little too seriously. It’s just design, after all.
This was my attempt to keep things light hearted, as Alec mentioned above.
Wasn't a knock. Keep on keepin' on.
